Re: Marcia Angell

Good articles - thanks for sharing, Kay!
I loved this quote from the first one, re that oft-touted line 'depression etc is a chemical imbalance in the brain':

"...instead of developing a drug to treat an abnormality, an abnormality was postulated to fit a drug...
By this same logic one could argue that ... fevers are caused by too little aspirin."

Yes that stuck out in my mind too! Like sore muscles are caused by too little ibuprofen! Or a rash is caused by too little hydrocortisone cream!
